Skip to comments.Sheriff Joe 'suspicious' of motive behind Obama attacks
Posted on 12/25/2011 7:48:56 PM PST by Smokeyblue
Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona's Maricopa County has been under fire for his immigration law-enforcement policies from protesters who simply object to what he's doing, in a lawsuit alleging his department profiles on race, and from the federal government which has canceled agreements with his department to check for violators who arrive at his jail.
Now he's wondering just how much of that displeasure from Washington is being generated by the perceived White House alarm over his Cold Case Posse investigation checking out suspicions raised by area tea-party officials that Barack Obama may use or try to use fraudulent documents to be on the 2012 presidential ballot in Arizona.
In an interview with WND, the sheriff said, "I am an elected sheriff. I took an oath of office to enforce all the laws of the state of Arizona. I take that very seriously. I do report to the people."
But he said he's considering the possibility there are political connections to the circumstances that have developed.
"The investigation, I'm not sure that's part of the puzzle or not. I wonder why they are going after me," he said. "I'm a little suspicious of what's going on. The reason I'm suspicious is that the president mentioned me recently."
He was talking about Barack Obama's recent discussion with some Hispanic journalists, and the question one raised about the government's investigation of Arpaio regarding his civil-rights record.
"The president didn't like the way I enforce 1070 (a state law regarding immigration)," he said.

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION at the link below to show you Stand With Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and AGAINST the political witchhunt of Obama’s Department of Justice. This Administration and its open-borders allies La Raza, MALDEF and the ACLU, will stop at nothing to try and destroy the most prominent national symbol in the fight against illegal immigration. Sheriff Joe will not back down. Please sign the petition to show we stand behind him.
Won’t happen. This country seems filled with people who aren’t just determined to self destruct, but take the entire country with them.
“The federal agent identified three on the first day on duty, he noted.”
The ONE federal ICE agent sent to replace 100 deputies.
Well, I’m not a “Sheriff Joe” fan: historically, there have been a lot of ‘tough on crime’ Western sheriffs who turned out to be corrupt to the core and I get the feeling that Sheriff Joe is blowing smoke with the best of ‘em. And I’m certainly not an Obama DOJ fan.
So I have to go with Kissinger: “It’s a shame they can’t both lose.” But maybe, in this case, they both can.
Don’t you think that if there were some corruption out there on the part of Arpaio, it would have been exposed and exploited by the media, pro-illegal immigration groups and/or the 0 administration? Do you have any reason to think that he is corrupt?
I do not wonder. It is obvious that Zer0 is going after anyone that opposes his agenda. Using the courts, using the race card, whatever he thinks will work with the MSM beating the drums.............
You make a lot of sense.
Thanks, I try and sometimes am successful.:)
“Well, Im not a Sheriff Joe fan:”
Well, most of us on FR are not a fan of yours, so I guess we’re even. You must be a closet RAT/Liberal because you use the words “I get the feeling,” All you Liberals must be blind because you always “feeling things up.”
“The investigation, I’m not sure that’s part of the puzzle or not. I wonder why they are going after me,”
Come on joe.. your not that stupid are you? Of course it’s why.
Praying for Sheriff Joe - love him!
Arpaio suspicious of Obama’s motivation ping...
(Mooshell having a cow, according to The Globe)
Well, Sheriff Joe is doing exactly what the administration wants to discourage: faithfully enforcing the laws on the books. He doesn’t fit into their world view, so they will have to try and discredit and marginalize him. All the best to you, Sheriff Joe, and keep up the good work!
Sheriff Joe is preparing to take nobama apart in February.
Get ready nobama. Your day is coming.
I suggest the RATS have someone warming up in the bull pen.

Would this someone’s first name begin with the letter H ? : )
Those wishing to contribute to the 501(c)3 supporting the Cold Case Posse investigation may send tax-deductible donations to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office at: MCSO Cold Case Posse, P.O. Box 74374, Phoenix, Ariz., 85087.God, I love this guy and will be sending a contribution. It's beyond pitiful that we apparently only have one honest, relatively high-ranking cop in this country willing to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. You'd think their oath would mean more to a greater number of them than one.
They’ve been after Arpaio for years and years and can’t get him.
